Recognition of Prior Learning

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is available to all MRWED students who can demonstrate that they already possess current skills and knowledge relevant to the qualification. Making an RPL application requires the students to complete an enrolment, then provide evidence substantiating their claim for competency. 

After reviewing the submitted evidence, a MRWED assessor will contact the participant with advice about whether or not the evidence satisfies the assessment requirements for each of the Units of Competency included in that qualification. If the provided evidence is sufficient, authentic, current and valid then the applicant will not be required to undertake any further training or assessment prior to issuance.

PRICE: TBC *Subject to student eligibility

MRWED eRPL students will have access to the online portal where they can quickly and easily upload their evidence to an assessor for review. Once reviewed, the MRWED Learner Success Team will provide feedback and any further guidance necessary.

MRWED will also provide a manual alternative if you prefer not to submit your documentation electronically. Please contact us at or via 1800287246 if you would like to know more about this option.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why does physical evidence need to be provided to gain competency?

Evidence needs to be provided in a range of ways to ensure that it is valid, authentic, current and sufficient. Because of these reasons, evidence typically needs to be provided in both documented and observed (by either the assessor or other qualified third parties) forms and included in your submission. This is why RPL cannot be granted from a phone conversation alone.

In most cases within 2 weeks of you successfully completing your studies, you will receive a link via your nominated email address to your original Statement of Attainment or Testamur. From this link you will be able to print a copy, save the document or forward as an attachment. If you would also like a hard copy sent to you, you will be asked in the email to confirm your details are correct, once confirmed we will organise printing and postage to your nominated postal address.

MRWED does not mandate a specific way of submitting your evidence and we recommend that you do not map your evidence to the Units of Competency. However, we do prefer that you organise your evidence into folders for the Unit of Competency to which they most logically apply. If you do this, please do NOT submit the same evidence into multiple folders. Your MRWED assessor will look at each individual item you submit and automatically check for its relevance to all Units of Competency.

From the date MRWED receives your portfolio of evidence you can expect an assessor to contact you within 10 business days.
